The Lakeland Terrier was previously known as the Patterdale Terrier and from the north of England Lake District. They were used to guard flocks of sheep; they were to destroy the foxes that attacked them. They were expected to follow the foxes down into the lair if they had to; this is why their chest width is meant to be the same as their head. Despite their reputation for courage and tenacity, the Lakeland is a gentle loving companion. The modern Lakeland has lost little of his fearless and independent spirit. Like their forebears, they are able to adapt to any circumstance and meets any challenge with enthusiasm. Their great athletic ability makes them an excellent candidate for activities such as Agility and Flyball.
Despite their independence, the Lakeland loves people and makes a loyal and affectionate companion. They are a fun loving, very energetic dog and have a good nature around children.
